Last Week's Biggest Sales: Everything Received Over Asking

Listed for: $4.2M
Received: $4.962M
Size: 5-bed, 4.5-bath, 4,346-square-foot single-family home
Location: 91 Commonwealth Ave, Laurel Heights
The skinny: This amply sized home arrived on the market in early September and went into contract in just eight days. Built in 1920, the property doesn't have a history on the MLS, but it did get fairly recent renovation in 2007 that upgraded windows and opened up some interior walls. Those updates no doubt helped the sellers get their $762K over asking. We're fans of the arched windows, coffered ceilings, and brickwork.

Listed for: $2.998M
Received: $3.31M
Size: 3-bed, 2.5-bath single-family home
Location: 22 Rico Way, the Marina
The skinny: Here's another property that went into contract in a flash. Built in 1928 and last sold in 2005 for $1.74M, this Marina home was reworked by Huang Iboshi Architecture, which brought in more natural light and added storage. The staging and photography don't exactly show off this supposedly bright home, but the kitchen is verifiably huge, and the quiet street may have helped nudge the offer well above the $3M mark.

Listed for: $2.5M
Received: $2.75M
Size: 7-bed, 5.5-bath single-family home
Location: 235 Anzavista Ave, Anza Vista
The skinny: You don't see a seven-bedroom that often in these parts. This home, built in 1948, was born of two condos combined. Which means there's plenty of room to spread out: Four of the bedrooms are on one level, and there's a home office as well as a sauna. But the real bonus is the parking that comes with doubling up on condos, netting the buyer a veritable mini-parking lot of four spaces in all.
